Educational Background:

    I graduated from Jackson High School in 1993.  I graduated from Southeast Missouri State University (Go Indians!) in 1997 with a B.S. in Secondary Education with an emphasis on social studies.  I then graduated from the University of Southern Mississippi in 2000 with a Masters in Instructional Technology.  I completed the Masters coursework in Administration at Southeast, and I have returned to Southeast to pursue a Specialist in Educational Administration.  I completed my Specialist work in December of 2010. I will be completing my Doctorate in Decemeber of 2018.

Teaching Experience:

    This is my 22nd year working for the district. During these years, I have seen numerous changes, and the district continues to improve.  That sounds like a long time, but the time has flown working with great students and staff.  I appreciate all the opportunities the district and community has provided me.

Plans for this year:

    To have a great school year and for the students to have a very successful school year.


On July 10th, 2004 I married my wife, Christina. We met at the technology workshop in Mrs. Nenninger's computer lab at the start of the 2003-04 school year.  We have one son, Deacon and one daughter, Daisy.

Other Interests/Hobbies

I enjoy fishing, reading, duck, quail, & turkey hunting, and traveling. I will always be interested in history and a student of history.

Memorable Events

I feel very blessed to have so many great memories in my life to this point, so these are just a few that quickly come to my mind:

Seeing the birth of our son, Deacon.

Seeing the birth of our daughter, Daisy.

Getting married on the beach in Destin.

My vehicle trades and pictures of my niece in the driver's seat of each one as she has grown up.

Meeting Buzz Aldrin on the 5th and 6th grade field trip.

Catching a hammerhead shark when I was surf fishing.

Attending Saturday Night Live in NYC--it was still good then too. Will Farrell and that group was on. Not this new cast. They are not nearly as funny.
